Being a Strong Lawyer Requires More Than a Law Degree

Brian knows that clients come to him at the most serious and stressful times of their lives. He sees it as his job to help his clients meet their challenges and come out of their situations in the best possible light. To help him achieve this, Brian relies on several interpersonal skills when interacting with clients and prosecutors.

  • A great listener
  • An excellent negotiator
  • A quick thinker
  • An empathetic advisor
  • Incredibly patient

These skills are what Brian leans on when building relationships and strong defenses.
